A: Nope! You just leave it out to dry over night and you’re good to go!
A: That is correct! Air Dry Clay should never be placed in an oven or kiln. Most pieces will be safe to handle carefully within a day, but should be allowed to dry at least 24-48 hours before painting or sealing. Actual time to completely dry may take several weeks, and the clay becomes stronger with time. Hope this helps!
A: No, no it does not require and oven.
A: Thanks for your question! Crayola Air-Dry Clay is a natural earth clay which air-dries to a hard solid. Shrinkage should be minimal during the drying process, so using this clay for a paw-print project should work out great. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-Crayola. Best wishes for a colorful future!
A: I actually just looked at a paw print I made about 6 years ago. It is still an entire piece, but there are cracks all over the top. I'm currently looking into a sealant I can use to keep it from getting any worse.
A: honestly any type of paint. i prefer acrylic paint , not crayola. but obviously it’s your preference. i just think acrylic paint works best!
A: Awesome question, Clark! Thoroughly dry pieces may be painted with tempera, acrylic or watercolor. Hope this helps!

A: Hi Sophie, Thanks for reaching out! While the Crayola Air-Dry Clay might leave a bit of residue on your hands, it is easily cleaned up by washing your hands with warm water and soap. If any residue remains, use baby wipes, baby oil or make-up remover. Hope this helps!
A: Thanks for asking! While Crayola does not make a clay that intentionally dissolves in water, we also do not suggest exposing your clay creations to excessive amounts of water as it may cause adverse effects to your masterpiece. Hope this helps!
A: That's a great question! Although not considered flammable, we do not recommend using Crayola Air-Dry Clay, wet or dry, near an open flame, in an oven, microwave or kiln. Exposure to high heat sources may cause drying out, cracking and browning. Hope this helps!
A: Great question! While Crayola Air-Dry Clay can be used to fill in cracks on sculptures made with the clay, we can't say for sure if it will work with other types of clay. We'd suggest testing in an inconspicuous area to make sure you are happy with the results.
A: Thanks for asking! Crayola Air Dry Clay, whether still wet (as sold) or dried, may be disposed of as household waste. There are no known restrictions for its transportation or disposal. Typical curbside-pickup household waste systems may be used for environmentally safe disposal. Hope this helps!
A: Glad you asked! For best results, we'd suggest waiting until your Air-Dry Clay masterpiece is completely dry and then adding paint. Happy creating!
